When you write about beauty advent calendars as much as I do, it's easy to get blasé about them. But there are some advent calendars that make you go 'wow', and you know it's going to be the ultimate treat. That's how I feel about the MAC Cosmetics Boom Boom Wow Advent Calendar - mainly because I am a professional magpie and this seriously sparkles.
This pink sparkly treat features everything you could ever need to get ready for the festive season, including lipsticks, lipglass, eyeshadows and mascara. It's priced at £125, and it's worth over £300. Do we need to repeat that? £300!
The calendar is available to buy on the beauty retail website Look Fantastic, and it's also available to shop at M·A·C stores and on maccosmetics.co.uk.

The items inside include a full-size retro matte lipstick, four small eyeshadows, three mini M·A·C Lipglas, a full-size brow set - and so much more! Plus, it's all wrapped up in a pink sparkly Frosted Firework keepsake case.
And talking of pink sparkles, you've got to see the new twinkling limited-edition Frosted Firework Colour Collection for Christmas - it really is a treat for the eyes.
